Holy crap, that’s me!

2011 December 24
by Emily Hill

Christmas came early this year when the February 2012 issue of Salt Lake Magazine hit the local newsstands (and Walmart shelves).

Salt Lake Magazine Emily Hill slow cooker


I was interviewed back in September and I’ve been dying to see how it all turned out. (I’d have made a paper chain to count down the days, but that would’ve been one long, non-eco-friendly paper chain.)  I’d say it’s not too bad, though perhaps I could’ve thought ahead and donned a more wintry outfit.

I highly recommend picking up a copy of the February 2012 issue of Salt Lake Magazine if only for Meditrina’s Coq Au Vin recipe on page 44; “The Faces Behind the Voices of SLC’s Radio” on page 64; and the dining guide starting on page 73.

It’s a great issue…and not just because it’s the only time you’ll ever see my kitchen that clean.

P.S. A truly heartfelt thank-you to Heidi over at foodiecrush for this surreal moment. She passed my name to Mary Brown Malouf who wrote the 5-page section on slow cooking in which I’m featured.

P.P.S. You simply MUST check out Heidi’s debut issue of foodiecrush magazine. It is the most gorgeous—and drool-inducing—thing I’ve ever seen.

You'll like these too!

    You look fantastic–love that color on you! And now I want some chicken; love Te idea of adding mushrooms and sundried tomatoes.

    Those mushrooms and tomatoes add a nice little kick to the recipe, but I do have to pick them out when serving it to the kids. (More for me!)

    I’m not famous, but it’s good to know if I ever am, it goes well with my complexion. ;)

    How gorgeous do you look!! All of your yummy recipes make me want to upgrade my really old slow cooker. Someday…

    Upgrading to a bigger, newer slow cooker was one of the best decisions ever! Seriously. I love it!
